Magh Biochar Retort -2 is for production of charcoal / biochar. This is one of the simple designs. With facility for opening the top, opening for igniting the retort, primary air openings on sides and secondary air facility at the top (used only for initial combustion), makes it easy to control and produce biochar / charcoal within three days. There is need for training on how to operate it for higher efficiencies of biochar production. The material used for construction, thickness of walls, gauge of steel sheet, etc are very important for durability.
This retort is created as part of GSBC Project. GEO is implementing the project in Parts of Andhra Pradesh, INDIA supported by GOODPLANET, FRANCE.
